We decided to stay in town for a mini stay-cation. We took the kids to The Arizona Grand Resort for one night and two days. We had fun playing in the sun at the Oasis water park, relaxing and spending time together.
Even though you can’t tell by the pictures, Jeremy was with us and he brought his friend, Blake, along to keep him company.
The resort’s water park has two eight story water slides, one not-so-scary water slide, a lazy river and wave pool. I’m not a fan of roller coasters or the sensation of falling but I knew it would make Rachel’s day if I went down one of the eight story slides. So after much begging (on her part) and psyching my self up, I did it! I went down the less scary of the two — the one with the tube sticking out of the tower (see picture below). Don’t need to try that again! Seth went down both slides and loved every minute of it. It was fun to hang out at the bottom of the slide to see how big of a splash we would make. He got a few cheers from the crowd. I had a lot of fun hanging out with Alex on the lazy river and she was thrilled that I actually went swimming in the wave pool.
For dinner we took the kids to Rustlers Rooste. Oh look, there’s Jeremy — see, I told you he was with us! We were entertained with a magic show at our table and the girls were left a little baffled by the tricks.
We feasted on rattlesnake, steak, BBQ pork ribs, grilled salmon, potato skins, coleslaw, baked beans, cow pie (ice cream), and free cotton candy. We were stuffed! They also have a fun indoor slide that we played on. This is a really fun place to have dinner.
